A chapel not to be missed, It has an incredible cycle of medieval frescoes of the Genesis that is well worth a visit - and they are in a very good state. The Chapel forms part of the Marino Marini Museum and thus three large modern art sculptures are present in the middle of the chapel which although nice detract a bit from the frescoes. But still worth a visit, and you should not miss them for the world

The Capella del Tau is part of an art museum of a local artist - but you are not obliged to visit this museum. The Capella del Tau has amazing frescos which you would not expect in such a small (former) church. Worth a visit for people with time and love for art.
